National Honor Society Induction to be Held Tonight

By Kelsey Ledford

Tonight students, teachers, and families will come together at the Robert L. Johnson auditorium at 7 p.m. to see Niles West students inducted into the National Honor Society. Anyone can come and see these students awarded for their four years of hard work.

In order to be inducted into the National Honor Society, a student must have a 3.8 weighted GPA or higher, participate in at least two after school clubs or sports per year, serve a minimum of fifteen hours of community service and showcase a strong character.

The ceremony will include speeches from several people including Dr. Jason Ness and senior Sherlina Chauhan, the president of National Honor Society. College and Career Counselor Daniel Gin said, “It’s great to see these kids being honored and recognized for their hard work in the community and the classroom.”

Senior Rebecca Harbeck, who will be inducted into the National Honor Society this evening, said, “It’s nice to be a part of a community that stresses academics and well rounded-ness.” Being a part of the National Honors Society is not all about being academically successful– students must also be willing to give back to the community and be involved in Niles West activities.

Harbeck also mentioned the benefits of being involved in the National Honor Society. “It’s good for the college application and it also shows that you’re a leader in the school.”

Senior James McLellan agrees. “It’s an opportunity that I applied for that I can put on college applications, but it’s not just an opportunity,” he said. ” It’s also a reward for all the hard work we’ve done.”
